Desensitized

Back

Desensitized

Worry on the free ride you're promised since birth
Digging holes deeper grinding face into dirt
Ostriches, sheep, humans far worse
Dragged by themselves complacent in mirth
Riding the coattails and never looking hard
At the lives they'd have if they didn't idolize
Their leaders, their peers, their oligarchs hand
Never biting, always feeding, no answers to demand
The senses so dulled by the sites they have seen
Burned bodies, cut throats, and yet no one screams
The violence, the game show, distracting each eye
As the stage of the world in tragedy sighs
Disaster, cataclysm, holy wars of faith
The race war. The class war, perpetual hate
States in poverty and struggling, nations in decline
Each pastor predicting looming end times
With so much to feel and media broadcasts world wide
Does it surprise you to know I'm desensitized?
